YA author Deanna Proach is back with her latest book, To Be Maria, a coming of age story that is just as valid today as if it came from the pages of the newspaper. Please join us to hear her excerpt and chat with me about the book.
To Be Maria
Seventeen-year-old Anya Preschnikov dreams of one day becoming a famous actor, but she's faced with two problems: her one-parent, dysfunctional family neglects her and has no money to support her, and at school, she's the target of her peers' contempt. Anya believes that in order to secure her stepping stone to stardom, she must dress like the rich girls and be surrounded by a large network of friends. All of this changes, though, when Maria Hernandez comes to Peach Valley Senior High.
Desperate to belong somewhere, Anya and Maria set out to find new friends outside of school. They soon meet Alex and Marissa, a young couple who eagerly welcomes them into their world of parties and drugs. Anya and Maria soon learn that Alex is a drug dealer, but they're so lured by his wealth and aggressive confidence that they can't resist his friendship. What they don't know is that Alex's gang is at war with a rival gang - one run by Anya's older brother, Adrik - until a deadly incident puts their lives in danger's path. To make matters worse, Alex refuses to let Anya and Maria out of his sight.
Deanna Proach was born and raised on the southwest coast of British Columbia, Canada. She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in History at the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George, BC. She currently resides in Sechelt where she is writing and acting.
Conversation with Deanna Proach, Author of To be Maria (Fiction/Young Adult) - "Seventeen-year-old Anya Preschnikov dreams of one day becoming a famous actor, but she's faced with two problems: her one-parent, dysfunctional family neglects her and has no money to support her, and at school, she's the target of her peers' contempt. Anya believes that in order to secure her stepping stone to stardom, she must dress like the rich girls and be surrounded by a large network of friends. All of this changes, though, when Maria Hernandez comes to Peach Valley Senior High. Rebellious and headstrong, Maria instantly gains the acceptance of her peers - yet she sees in Anya what everyone else does not: her physical beauty and immense talent. So when Maria extends her hand of friendship, Anya is elated. Her lifelong dream seems like it's about to become a reality - until it falls short one Saturday night at a party when a boy's rude comment sends her into a rage. Desperate to belong somewhere, Anya and Maria set out to find new friends outside of school. They soon meet Alex and Marissa, a young couple who eagerly welcomes them into their world of parties and drugs.
The two young women soon find themselves forced into a situation that could have very tragic consequences if they don't escape it soon..." Twitter: @deannproach
Mike McCoy and Deanna Reeder will recap the 5/12/2015 Moreno Valley City Council Meeting where budget issues were the main topic, particularly the Public Safety expenditures. There was some dissension between Councilmenbers for a variety of reasons. The City Manager was annoyed at what are most likely false allegations about a staff member by one of the most ardent of the Benzeevi Brigade. We will discuss the recent NBC news from last night and the second in a series of three videos about the WLC. Councilmember Giba was served with intent to recall last night.
Tonight my special guest is Deanna Spingola.
Deanna is an author, researcher and radio host. She investigates government and corporate corruption as it relates to the faltering liberties of American citizens and the war-targeted populations of other countries. Deanna is not afraid to address controversial issues as you will certainly hear in this interview on Sandy Hook.
Deanna’s recent books include her Ruling Elite trilogy along with her newest book Screening Sandy Hook: Causes and Consequences.
In Screening Sandy Hook she examines the role psychiatric drugs played in the shooting incident. And in our conversation she explains that the real Sandy Hook conspiracy was not about guns but about protecting the pharmaceutical industry.
Tonight Deanna Spingola returns to the show.
With this show Deanna will walk us through a piece of WWII history that has been erased from the history books. The main stream narrative of the second World War majors exclusively on the Holocaust but never talks about Dwight Eisenhower’s Rhine Meadow Death Camps which claimed the lives of an estimated 1.5 million Germans. The running and condition of these enslavement camps was so deplorable that it is virtually incomprehensible to believe anyone, let alone a US general and later a US president, would have treated people in a way that can only be described as evil.
For many, much of what you will hear in this show will be a surprise and perhaps even shocking. I encourage everyone to listen with an open mind and as you do remember the words of Winston Churchill; “History is written by the victors.”

According to Charlie Sykes Deanna Alexander is the “Right Woman to Watch”! I am honored to have her as my guest today.
We all are aware of the issues that destroyed a section of Baltimore City this week. As a member of the Milwaukee County Board Deanna is faced with dealing with issues that affect all aspects of our communities.
From fiscal issues as well social and cultural differences, I for one am glad that we have someone like her looking at these is issues. Serving on a board that has mostly liberal members comes with its own set of challenges.
We all know that Milwaukee is a hot bed of liberal politics just like in Baltimore MD. The failure of these cities has been solidified by the fact they have been run for years by liberals and democrats. Isn't it insane to think that more of the same type of government will make anything better? Milwaukee, its time for a change and I for one will be watching the rising star of Deanna Alexander.
Milwaukee County Supervisor Deanna Alexander is under some small arms fire because of a satirical comment she made about Hillary Clinton, referring to her as "Ovary" #OperationOvary.
Can anyone honestly say that they are completely offended by this? What politician at the presidential level has not been made fun of? Is this some sort of Left Wing conspiracy? This is simply ridiculous and goes to further the assumption by many that H. Clinton thinks she should be president simply because she is a woman.
As with Barack Obama and not being able to challenge him because he is African-American, anyone who dares challenge Clinton will be labeled as a sexist and a part of the infantry in the #waronwomen.
How about this? Why not just simply refer to her as Hillary liar of Benghazi, Taking money from terrorists, say anything to get elected Clinton!
$50Billion Signing Bonus for Iran
Confused, angry, and scared controversy surrounds Barack Obama and his shady forever changing deal with Iran. Reports continue to come out that the President has known for over a year that Iran is less than 3 months away from being able to produce a nuclear weapon. Much embarrassment, well there should be, surrounds the President on this matter along with the fact that he seems to even think Iran can be trusted.
Why does it seem like the Left is so blinded when it comes to extremist? These people, Iran in particular, has flat out shown that they hate the West and anything we stand for. How can or why does the President believe that Iran is trustworthy? Maybe the question really is...Is the President trustworthy?
Right now Baltimore, MD is in the midst of Racial tension (not hard to accomplish anywhere in the nation right now) because of the death of Freddie Gray while in police custody. Gray was arrested on April 12 after fleeing from the police. Many are saying that Gray was arrested simply for "running while Black".
